In case you missed it, This Week’s Meta Weekly was the first of our two KC Cup format Meta Weeklies, and was an impressive showing for Karakuri, with them being the second-most represented deck in Top Cut, even taking 2 Spots in Top 4. However, both Karakuri’s were slain by wowerer’s Witchcrafters, earning him his second Meta Weekly win this season! You can catch our previous interview with wowerer here.
How does it feel to win your second Meta Weekly?
It was super cool. My new clan supporting me really motivated me to keep going.
How did the day go for you? Any memorable matchups?
The match against Negative1 definitely was the highlight. We both knew the winner of that match would end up taking it home. I was doing super well all day - no severe bricks except for one match. Maybe I drew That Grass Looks Greener too many times but I ain’t complaining about that.
Why did you go with Witchcrafter this Meta Weekly?
I feel Witchcrafters are the strongest deck and they got a lot better without Side Decking. I have been running Witchcrafter the last few Meta Weeklies and always got at least Top 16 so it was only a matter of time until my lolis would win. One example where no Side Deck makes it easier for Witchcrafter is when your opponent has no backrow and you know they can’t play Last Day of Witch you can be more aggressive by milling another Spell instead of Witchcrafter Masterpiece with Witchcrafter Schmietta for example
With the MCS coming up and the KC Cup right after, what do you expect to be the best deck, and how do you think the meta will adapt?
I expect quite a few more Karakuris, and thus more Blackwings which have a 50% matchup against Witchcrafter and are good vs Karakuri. I think Witchcrafter will win the MCS and Karakuri get 2nd Place
Can we expect to see you in the MCS?
I will be playing in MCS and it’s gonna be a great show. I wish good luck to everyone!
Lastly, do you have any Shoutouts you would like to make?
I want to thank everyone that has supported me over the last few months, my clan BAD, my team Gods Chosen, and MHC especially Maximilian K and Pokerguy
